I love reading my way through the Man Booker Prize long list and short list. It’s probably the greatest annual prize in fiction going with a whacking great £50k for the winner. One day Ill pen my novel and it will win!!! One day . . . hmmm! Anyhow my absolute favourite book from this year’s shortlist and the one I seriously hope wins is Graeme Macrae Burnet’s ‘His Bloody Project’.
I have never read a book like this before, it’s such a ridiculously cleaver idea. The basic conception is that Roderick Macrae has committed three murders, is arrested, and asked to write a memoir of the events that led up to the murders. This is then printed in full, followed by trial statements and physiological reports on Macrae. It’s so meticulously written and plotted; that a few times I thought surely this is all real, surely no one…
If you guys haven’t noticed yet, I like to follow fads, trends, take action on some, wait until almost the end to join in on others, and when it comes to fitness, I have to have a little something more for motivation. I’ve always struggled with finding that motivation to get my ass moving. I need the workout plan, the diet, the whole routine clearly laid out for me. It’s the only way I can really stick to things! If I have to come up with it on my own….well…fat chance of that happening.
So, I’ve tried a few different programs (I know, there are a TON out there) but here’s my top 3 favorite programs I’ve tried and why!
Borrowed Time, a short film that Pixar animators Lou Hamou-Lhadj and Andrew Coats made as a side project. The piece, which has toured film festivals and is now available on Vimeo for a limited time, is expressly about loss and mourning.

Interesting Fact: Common Grackles are resourceful foragers. They sometimes follow plows to catch invertebrates and mice, wade into water to catch small fish, pick leeches off the legs of turtles, steal worms from American Robins, raid nests, and kill and eat adult birds.

Today I decided to take advantage of the nice weather by wearing a skirt and tank top. I love the classic look of black and white for work. I wear to work Express portofino shirts fairly often. I have the portofino top in several colors and patterns but I only have this one that is the tank top style. I normal wouldn’t wear a tank top to work but I do like the looks of this one and think that it still looks professional. Pretty soon I can break out my fall work clothes!
